George Saunders discusses storytelling


Here we are, the end of November, and for those of you that took part in NaNoWriMo (or are nearing the end of a draft or deadline), I bet you’re exhausted. No kidding, so am I.

Earlier this month, we wrote and shared some writing advice from author George Saunders; like any one of his stories, there exists a wealth of imagination and curiosity to be found. Likewise, Saunders is one of the most practical and inspiring writers from which to seek writing advice during times of exhaustion, worry, and stress.

So, take a little break, rest your tired mind, and take to heart Saunders’ advice on how to stay true to our internal storytelling “meter.” Watch the video now:
